College Time Charts

College Recruitment Chart

The charts below should act as a guide for parents and athletes to get an idea of where they sit in regards to college recruiting. Remember, this is just a guide based on what we see college coaches looking for in our athletes each year. Athletes with good grades stand the best chance of being recruited. Most college coaches look at academics, test scores, and event times in determining scholarship athletes. If you want more opportunities, think outside of California!
